Hope you don't mind me calling you Ben?
In two words Yes and No.

The Acoustic is an Old Eco Ranger, similar quality to a basic Yamaha. Bass is is an 80's Ibanez Musician, it was top of the range then, I bought it cheap second hand. The Arch top Jazz guitar was a lucky find It's called a Rally Blue Harlem, a new make manufactured in Gibson Epiphone factories. When I tried it out it had similar tone to that of guitars 3 times the price, I paid £349.00 for it

Drums is Ezdrummer, one of the best drum software you can get, used the Jazz kit and played around with the pre-set rhythms.

Audio recorded via a Yamaha AW16G standalone recorder, it's OK accept the preamps are poor, but I put all miced stuff via an Art Gold MPA tube preamp which in this song was only used for the acoustic guitar.

The Bass and Arch top were recorded through line6 pods, I have one for Bass and one for Guitar, in my opinion they are excellent value for money, the Bass in particular on this track came out better than I thought.

Other than that I used standard compression, reverb and finally mastered the whole thing with Adobe Audition mainly to clean up the track and edit.

It's taken me a while to get this quality, but there is still room for improvement.

I simply work hard at it, each time I record something I learn something new about recording techniques not to mention help here on bandAMP.

So if you want help don't be afraid to ask - there are many talented people here who would only be more than happy to help you

I think I just should learn how to work with the compresion, I already read your thing about compresion, so i'm going to use those things. Ezdrummer. I'm a good drummer, but I can't get the sound good in my computer because I have only one mic. So maybe I'm going to check out ezdrummer

Depends on the genre, you can get away with three mics on the drums, two overhead and one for the kick.

Check out addictive drums too,  great for rock , blues

Or an electronic kit, Roland and Yamaha are the best, but I guess if you only have one mic your budget is limited

I've got all the kits for Ezdrummer plus percussion, it's a good all round piece of software which will give you a pro sound
